Using desktop shortcut to launch a specific vault opens unwanted vaults with it

Steps to reproduce

  • Create two obsidian vaults “VaultA” and “VaultB”
  • On desktop, create two shortcuts (right-click, new, new shortcut) using the following URL-scheme for each, accordingly.
  • Launch one of the shortcuts.
  • If the problem doesn’t appear, close that vault and open the other shortcut.

Expected result

Each vault opens individually

Actual result

One of the shortcuts will work correctly. The other one will launch both vaults at the same time.


  • Operating system: Windows 10
  • Obsidian version: Obsidian v0.10.1

Additional information

The bug might switch to the other shortcut (the one previously working correctly) when you close all vaults and repeat the process a number of times.
